German- Chinese consultations: A new „German problem“?

While under the government of Helmut Schmidt and Helmut Kohl, as well as the US governments at that time, engagement policy towards China was dominant, the Schröder / Fischer government even thought of expanding the new G8 with Russia into a G9 with China and wanted for this Eurasization of the G7 to get a permament seat in the UN Security Council and a reform of the UN, Schröder also saw China and Russia as a top priority, from which…

France: Erosion of the Republican consensus and calls for a coup de etat before the coming Presidential elections

France: Erosion of the Republican consensus and calls for a coup de etat before the coming Presidential elections

Their last battle will serve to defend “Western civilization” in France. Twenty retired generals have made a high-profile appeal that denounced the “laxity” of those in charge of politics in the face of the threat posed by Islamism and, literally, “the hordes in the banlieue”. “France is in danger. We remain soldiers and cannot ignore what is happening to our beautiful country, ”they write. The appeal was signed by more than 100 officers and 1,000 other military personnel. He belatedly…

EU-Russian ecological cooperation-the discussion in the Russian elite has just started: RIAC, CREON, IISES, Karaganov, NRU-HSE and Russia in Global Affairs

EU-Russian ecological cooperation-the discussion in the Russian elite has just started: RIAC, CREON, IISES, Karaganov, NRU-HSE and Russia in Global Affairs

In the Global Review/ Club of Rome paper “ EU-Russian ecological cooperation needed despite and because of the Covid crisis“we described the Russian state of mind in ecological affairs as follows: “Russian strategists including Putin have a very ambivalent relation to climate crisis. On the one side Putin signed the Paris Climate Accord—different to Trump and Bolsonaro -, thinks about the consequences of the frost melt of the Russian East and the airing of methane, on the other side Putin…

Burma/Myanmar: Between ASEAN´s demanded deescalation and real escalation

While the situation in Burma/Myanmar is escalating, the Karen Union attacking Burmese military troops to protect protesters and some parts of the opposition call for international interference under the Right To Protect (R2P), China tries to fend off any Western or foreign support for the opposition before the meeting of the Myanmar coup leader Snr-Gen Min Aung Hlaing with the ASEAN as this would escalate and destabilize the situation. However, calls by the opposition for an invitation to the ASEAN…

Annalena Baerbrock and Katrin Göring Eckhardt on EU-Russia-Climate Protection Cooperation: “The cooperation possibilities outlined by you will therefore be difficult or impossible to implement from our point of view with the current leadership in the Kremlin”

Global Review asked Annalena Baerbrock and Katrin Göring-Eckhardt how they think about an EU-Russia climate protection cooperation. Unfortunately, we only received very general, rather negative answers, which, moreover, cannot imagine any cooperation with Putin and the Russian government, but primarily only through NGOs. Dear Mrs. Baerbrock, How do you think about an EU-Russia climate protection cooperation, the reforestation of the green lungs of Eurasia, the Siberian forests, the promotion of blue and turquese hydrogen technology with gas, the cooperation in…

Global Review hat einmal auf Abgeordnetenwatch Annalena Baerbrock uind Katrin Göring-Eckhardt gefragt, wie sie zu einer EU-Russland-Klimaschutzkooperation stehen. Dabei erhielten wir leider nur sehr allgemeine eher ablehnende Antworten, die sich zudem keine Kooperation mit Putin und der russischen Regierung, sondern vor allem nur über NGOs vorstellen können. Liebe Frau Baerbrock, Wie stehen Sie zu einer EU-Russlandklimaschutzkooperation,die die Aufforstung der grünen Lunge Eurasiens ,der sibirischen Wälder,die Förderung von blauer und grüner Wasserstofftechnologie mit Gas,die Kooperation bei dem Bau von green und…

Peace in Lybia, war in Chad: Islamic Belt from Nigeria to the Sahel zone or fragmentation and new African order?

After the Lybian war parties under the mediation from Russia and Turkey signed a peace treaty, build a transistion government and want to hold elections this year, the war zone and its regional players seem to move to the next front: Chad and the Sahel zone. In Chad, the polling stations had just closed on April 11th. The residents of the oasis town of Wour in the far north flocked to the markets to stock up on food for Ramadan,…

Israel and the Iran deal: Natanz, hoped-for regime change, military strike or acceptance

Israel´s government is trying to influence the Biden administration which pushes for a new Iran deal. Netanjahu still reserves the right to act on its own as a sovereign nation and is concerned that Biden won´t listen to Israel´s interests. However, a former IDF intelligence chief thinks that a new Iran deal could be a solution which buys Israel time and would be in its own interest. “Israeli cabinet ‘concerned the US wants an Iran deal at all costs’ The…

Deutscher Radikalpazifismus: „Nein, meine Söhne gebe ich nicht“

Deutscher Radikalpazifismus: „Nein, meine Söhne gebe ich nicht“

Eines der besten Beispiele für den deutschen postheroischen und radikalpazifistischen Liedersingsang ist Reinhard May und Freunde „Meine Söhne gebe ich nicht“, da er die Philiosophie des deutschen radikalen Nachkriegspazifismus und seiner Beschränkungen klar macht Hier werden matriachalische Leitbilder besungen von Müttern, die unter Geburtsschmerz eine enge Beziehung zu ihren Söhnen haben und sie sie deswegen nicht als Kanonenfutter weggeben wollen. Von Töchtern und Transgendern ist da ganz klassisch noch nicht die Rede. Aber lassen wir es einmal so stehen, die…

Antifascism in the Bundeswehr: How would you have acted or how will you act today in view of the AfD and after the war in Afghanistan?

Unlike in the USA, where the bearer of arms ihavea guaranteed basic right and iare understood in the sense of an inalienable human right, the monopoly of force does not only lie with state institutions, but Trumpists, neo-Nazis, Tea party people and militias walk around armed,while German fascists have when they want armed organizations  the only way is through the infiltration of the state monopoly of violence, shooting clubs and the illegal procurement of weapons.

Anders als in den USA, wo das Waffentragen ein verbürgtes Grundrecht ist und im Sinne eines unveräusserlichen Menschenrechts verstanden wird und das Gewaltmonopol nicht nur bei staatlichen Institutionen liegt,Trumpisten, Neonazis, Tea Partyleute und Milizen bewaffnet herumlaufen, haben deutsche Faschisten, wenn sie bewaffnete Organisationen gründen wollen, nur den Weg über die Infiltration des staatlichen Gewaltmonopols , Schützenvereinen und der illegalen Beschaffung von Waffen.

Letter from an America friend: The Unlikelihood of a War With China and Russia

Letter from an America friend: The Unlikelihood of a War With China and Russia

  The Unlikelihood of a War With China and Russia By: George Friedman Much has been made of China’s seemingly unending potential to invade Taiwan – nearly as much as Russia’s buildup near Ukraine, which many believe is little more than a pretext for a future war. Lurking behind this is the age-old fear that Russia and China will team up to undermine the United States, say, by launching simultaneous attacks. This isn’t inconceivable, but neither is it likely. Let’s…

Why have been authotarian regime changes more sucessful than Western regime changes?

While some Western regime changers hoped that the return of Navalny could incite broad protest movements in Russia, the German newmagazine “Deutsche Welle” published an analysis of the chances for a broad protest movement in Russia and thereby for a regime change option. Therefore we want to repost it in English and think it comes close to the analysis of part-time Putin adviser Dr. Rahr. Even if Putin is losing popularity and his party United Russia has a historic low…

Northern Irexit- the decline of Global Britain?

After the riots in Northern Ireland, politicians from all parties condemned the riots on Thursday. „Destruction, violence and the threat of violence are completely unacceptable and unjustifiable,“ said the province’s government after an emergency meeting. The Northern Irish regional parliament had previously been called back prematurely from the Easter break. It now wants to advise on how to deal with the street battles that Protestant-loyalist gangs in Belfast and Derry, the second largest city in Northern Ireland, have been fighting…
